As much as I love Doc Rivers, he failed to push any of the right strategic or psychological buttons to help save a team that was up 3 games to 1 with a 16-point halftime lead in Game 5. Mike Malone outcoached him.
Happy for Mike Malone! Got it out the mud fasho! 🙏🏿
Props & Congrats to Denver, particularly Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray & Mike Malone. Job well-done. Skills & heart in abundance.
“I am going to get you home or I am going to get you a Western Conference Finals.” 😂
Jokic on the present he said he would give coach Mike Malone today for his birthday.
The scene after Mike Malone walked into the Nuggets locker room... (via @Nuggets)
“Now, I trust you. That’s all it is. … Go play free.”
A look at Doc Rivers and Mike Malone talking to their teams ahead of Game 7.
Mike Malone was the one guy who @boogiecousins
respected. Malone had him & @SacramentoKings
going in the right direction & yet the Kings brass fired him. The Kings still suck, Malone is going to the Western Conference Finals. Karma
Shoutout to Mike Malone and his staff. Remember what this Denver team was and looked like at the start of the bubble. Going to the Conference Finals. Incredible guts.
Mike Malone instructed Plumlee to let Trez get some dunks in the first quarter so that Doc would overplay him in the 2nd I hate it here https://t.co/R8qnbV7OCm
Émotion de fou pour cette équipe.
3x le même scénario.
3x Jokic sur un nuage.
Jamal Murray c’est Steph Curry.
J’en reviens pas de la perf collective (x3) de Denver.
Bravo Mike Malone.
2020 nous réserve des surprises
You remember when Kings fired Mike Malone like 12 games into the season lmao, he’s a great coach
the only Clippers podcast to wish Mike Malone a happy birthday on the day his team eliminated the Clippers in game 7?
You'll have to listen to all of the other wonderful Clippers podcasts to find out https://t.co/BWBnHjgsdR
Impresionante el carácter competitivo de estos Denver Nuggets. Pasan a la final de conferencia remontando sendos 3-1 a Utah Jazz y LA Clippers. Con Mike Malone consagrándose como un gran entrenador. Con un interior al que llaman flojo y gordo. Y con un Murray de dulce. Olé ahí 💪🏻 https://t.co/fVtquTcLqJ
Considering the condition the Nuggets were in when they got to the bubble (Injuries/people late bc of Covid) & the fact that they have had 3 or 4 different starting lineups in the past two series alone seeing them get to where they’re at I gotta shout out Mike Malone. What a job.
How many F ups need to happen until we realize that the common denominator is @Vivek
? Mike Malone making it to the WCF is the latest sign of Viveks ineptitude of running a successful front office
Mike Malone was let go by the kings and now look at him.
Nobody talks about mike Malone
We’ve had 4 coaches since we fired Mike Malone who is now in the WCF. #GoKings @SacramentoKings
Mike Malone believed in his squad the whole time n every time they showed a huddle his words hit
Doc Rivers should be fired tomorrow. Clippers led by 16 in Game 5, 19 in Game 6 and by 11 tonight in game 7. Lost a 3-1 series lead. He got out-coached plain and simple by Mike Malone and the Denver. Nuggets play for each other, Clippers play for themselves. Lost (3) Games 3-1
What I learned tonight:
1. Bam/Herro are toughhh (Jimmys been that way we know this)
2. Kawhi being compared to LeBron is a joke
3. Nuggets are deeeep/aren’t afraid of anyone
4. Jamal Murray is in fact a killa
5. Kings really dropped the ball on Mike Malone
Respectez Mike Malone maintenant
Mike Malone has some of the worst reflexes I've seen in a coach hence why they are always in these game 7s he waits until shit is way out of control to adjust https://t.co/fh6AehJ0E5
thoughts on coach mike malone after this series? u have that Sacramento Kings connection wid him
Mike Malone is underrated.
